Welcome from Julian Grant

Head Teacher

Mr Julian Grant

We are delighted that you are considering Sackville for the next stage of your education.

Choosing where to study after year 11 is one of the most important decisions you will make; it will influence the path that you travel in the future and allow you to develop lifelong skills and talents. At Sackville, we are committed to offering every individual a journey in the sixth form that suits and challenges their own unique needs and talents. Selecting the right course of study is therefore vital and our dedicated staff will offer support and guidance to help you make those choices. 

Our sixth form is excellent: an exciting and vibrant community where exam results are high, students make good progress, facilities are modern and where the culture of opportunity and responsibility thrives. We are proud of our success at university entrance, including to Oxbridge and Russell Group institutions, medical schools and veterinary colleges.

In addition to academic excellence, we are committed to providing a wide range of opportunities through which our year 12 and year 13 students can develop the self-confidence, social skills and resilience that will help them to succeed in higher education, pursue a rewarding career and make a positive contribution to their community. We offer all of our students the chance to learn and grow, the right to be listened-to and the right to express themselves. We are proud to be your local sixth form provider and, for those of you currently at Sackville, we have the advantage of already knowing you well! This is particularly helpful when you are making that significant leap from GCSE to higher level studies. Of course, we also offer a particularly warm welcome to those joining us from elsewhere. Our strong tutorial and pastoral system ensures that you will settle in very quickly and soon feel a valued member of our community. We always focus on keeping class sizes small to ensure the best quality support and achievement.

Students who make the decision to join Sackville sixth form can expect to leave us as independent learners, high achievers, active members of the community and confident in the pursuit of their chosen goals. Nowadays we all have to be more flexible and better equipped to meet change. Certain human values, however, do not change. At Sackville we hope you will join us in meeting the challenge of producing fine, successful citizens for this exciting future.

We look forward to welcoming you!
